LIV
Nightlife

LIV

As seen on TV and heard in rap lyrics by everyone from Kanye West to Drake, LIV sets the standard for megaclubs worldwide. Nestled inside the lobby of the historic Fontainebleau hotel—itself a backdrop for major motion pictures including Scarface to Goldfinger—LIV is at once opulent and turntbeyond belief. Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Laidback Luke hold down monthly residencies at the EDM powerhouse alongside a regular program of huge DJs and rap stars. And the stars show up to worship. On any given Sunday, you might run into Floyd Mayweather, Lil Wayne or a Kardashian. With a focus on bottle service, there is more table space than dance floor. Deep pockets are encouraged.

The Electric Pickle Company
Nightlife

The Electric Pickle Company

International DJs are quick to gush about this two-story Wynwood space, saying it's their absolute favorite place to play—especially those favoring underground house and techno. Inside, it’s intimate and dark with a kind of “anything goes” party policy that guests and die-hards find very “European”. Owners are renowned for their music-first approach, and prices are kept moderate. You won’t find any bottle service attitude here.

Libertine

Libertine

It may be the new kid on the block, but Libertine has quickly become the spot for late-night gatherings between the coolest of cool. Though it’s run by separate management, the club shares walls and a 24-hour liquor license with its neighbor Club Space, giving Libertine staff free rein to stay open until “whenever”. Those looking to keep the party going pack in wall-to-wall and dance to anything from deep house to indie electro. The piano-facade DJ booth sometimes gives way for local electronic bands like Otto Von Schirach or Afrobeta. The bar serves craft cocktails or whatever you want, and there’s never any cover.

Bardot
Nightlife

Bardot

One of the first to come up in the Wynwood Art District, this low-lit hipster haunt is best known for its fresh and progressive musical programming covering all bases from emerging rappers to next-up superstar DJs, and independent artists of all kinds. With big comfy couches and no proper stage, DJs and bands play on “the carpet”. There’s literally nothing between artist and fan, which makes for uniquely up-close-and-personal shows. Decorated with risqué pictures, posters of ’60s-era sex kittens, old books and a pool table, Bardot aims for Parisian style and dirty sophistication. It can get quite crowded for sold-out events, and with no outdoor space, it most definitely will get smoky, but most fans are willing to brave it to see these rare or up-and-coming acts.
